2019 Australian Open Golf & Handicap Tournament Signup
I don't know if anyone else got caught in that polar vortex, but after windchills below -55 degrees Fahrenheit (-48 Celsius), I am ready for some sunshine.
Luckily next week we will be visiting Adelaide, where the temperature is about 130 degrees warmer (on the Fahrenheit scale, at least). I can't wait to work on my golfer's tan (weird forehead hat lines and all) with you all!
This time it will be mostly a regular golf tournament - 18 holes, random groupings, golf scoring:
Condor: 2500 (-4)
Albatross: 2250-2499 (-3)
Eagle: 2000-2249 (-2)
Birdie: 1500-1999 (-1)
Par: 1000-1499 (+0)
Bogey: 500-999 (+1)
Double Bogey: 250-499 (+2)
Triple Bogey: 1-249 (+3)
Quadruple Bogey: 0 (+4)
The twist this time will be a handicap tournament, which will run concurrently with the regular golf tournament. No extra holes will need to be played, there will just be two leaderboards (one with the straight up scores, one handicapped).
I have a couple of options on how to handicap this. One involves past golf tournament scores, one is a bit more complicated using the Decathlon stats. Will wait to see who signs up to decide which will work best. Either way, I expect to see a completely random scoreboard for the handicapped portion. It will boil down to playing above one's average or merely getting the lucky draw when it comes to the daily groupings.
Would love to get the beer cart operable, the liquor pouring, and can somebody find my good double-hinged winekey?
Factacular, fun, and participation have a direct relationship, so please feel free to shoot of some brainoffs to your Kevvie teammates, people who haven't been around lately, those too shy to enter the tournaments.
I think all the tournaments (now) cater to as many entrants as possible, so would love to see a big turnout for the first golf tourney of the year.
